Netgear card WG311v3 turining to 802.11b automatically from 802.11g

Hi, i've bought 1 WG311v3 Netgear card. I want to make it work in 802.11g mode. When i'm switching the computer on it shows 802.11g but after sometime it is turning automatically to 802.11b. Can anyone say why it is happening? and how can i make it work to 802.11g?Thanks

Wireless cards normally connect at the fastest bitrate they can sustain. Presumably in your case the card cannot maintain an 802.11g connection speed because the signal from your router/hotspot is too weak.

Actually i'm using this card for the last 6 months, before i was using it to work with access point and it was working fine.But now i'm trying to set-up the Ad-Hoc mode with other PCs having WPN311 Netgear wireless card. The distance between them is not more than 20m and this problem arised. Can u say is there any option to make it perform permanently in 802.11g?
